4mb SRAM card...

Can be used as a small drive or as a memory upgrade.

Slow as ram on an A1200 as it is 16bit and 1200 ram is 32bit, but awsome upgrade for an A600...

Thanks :)

But where does it fit? Do I need an adaptor cable?

If you have an A1200 or A600 it just plugs into the pcmcia slot on the side of the amiga

Not really of use for any other miggy models afaik

You may need to run Prepcard that I think is in the tools folder...

...except it doesn't...

Here's a new better picture where you can see the difference between a normal PCMCIA-card and this one

Jeida memory card.
Popular on very early alptops.
No use on miggy.

Copied from the wiki:

The establishment of the JEIDA interface and cards across Japanese portables provoked a response from the US government, through SEMTEC (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=SEMTEC&action=edit&redlink=1), and thus PCMCIA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_Computer_Memory_Card_International_Association) was born. PCMCIA and JEIDA worked to solve this rift between the two competing standards. In 1991, the two standards merged, and became JEIDA 4.1 or PCMCIA 2.0.

I always love a little history lesson :)

LOL, before clicking on the picture mate, I thought that this PCMCIA-card was really a bug-style or a butterfly-one. :lol:

Thanks for clearing that up :thumbsup: No use in a miggy, no use at all :D
